Cigarettes and Matches

It is bad luck to light three cigarettes with the same match.

I heard that this was because when soldiers were hiding in foxholes in the dark, the lighted match would give away their position to the enemy. 1st cigarette = ready, 2nd cigarette = aim, and the 3rd cigarette would have been FIRE!
